SpookyMark, I also have the "Without Remorse" book from Tom Clancy. Thanks for bringing it up! Pretty much brings out the beginnings of John Clarke (Sam Fisher:Splinter Cell=my 2nd favorite), my favorite character in all of the Clancy novels. A certified, bona-fide bad***!

If you like those, I think you might like Helen Forrester's autobiographical books about Liverpool. (I may have mentioned them before.) They are brilliant.


You mentioned one of her books, and my mother-in-law sent me all four of the autobiographical books. I want more and more books of that era and of the same type.

I love those stories where they are about life of the ordinary, and not a romance, and not of the wealthy.[/font][/size]

( Inheritance Trilogy )
Eragon/Eldest = Christoper Paolini

Fantasy/Sci-Fiction
Summary : A boy finds a beautiful stone and the stone hatches a blue dragon. The boy and dragon is persued by the evil king Galbatorix's henchmen, which killed Eragons Uncle. Now, seeking revenge, Eragon and his dragon, with the guidance of an old storyteller, tries to track down the evil Razac. Along the why, they meet suprising characters, and joins the Varden, a group of rebels amoung the Galbatorix's kingdom in an independant state called SURDA.

=D that book is the most amazing book ive read! Eragon is book one and Eldest is the second.

This is the topic that never ends, so I'll go ahead and add to it. I have been recommending to everyone I know they read soon:

Philip Pullman's His Dark Materials trilogy

The Golden Compass (or Northern Lights if you're a Brit)
The Subtle Knife
The Amber Spyglass

I say soon because The Golden Compass movie is being released in December starring Nicole Kidman and Daniel Craig, and I hate seeing a movie or even trailers for a movie if I haven't already read the book (if it's a good book that is).

They are marketed as young adult fiction but are great for adults as well--as all good kid's books are. On the surface it is a fantasy adventure story about an orphaned girl, however it is actually a modern, post-Christian retelling of Milton's Paradise Lost. Don't let that put you off though, they are completely readable and entertaining even if you miss/ignore the religious themes.

I think my daughter has read a couple of those ~ and I have been tempted, myself ~ maybe I'll give them a try.

Thanks!
